Penny Serenade


Published 1941


As Julie prepares to leave her husband Roger, she begins to play through a stack of recordings, each of which reminds her of events in their lives together. One of them is the song that was playing when she and Roger first met in a music store. Other songs remind her of their courtship, their marriage, their desire for a child, and the joys and sorrows that they have shared. A flood of memories comes back to her as she ponders their present problems and how they arose.

Subject: A Gem of a movie
I love this movie. I found the cd in a Wal-Mart bin and it's an overlooked gem. Yeah it's sentimental and corny by today's standards but I think it's great. The scene where Cary Grant (a much under-appreciated serious actor IMO) pleads for his daughter is just unbelievably heartbreaking. Well worth a watch.

Watch this film and you can't help but adore Cary Grant. You just can't. He's hysterical one moment and heart-wrenching the next. It's a beautiful story and a great showcase for a very talented actor. Lovely, lovely movie. My favorite moment: the proposal to Irene Dunn. There was NO way she was going to turn that down:)

I remember seeing this flick on TV as a little boy and I never forgot it. Sure, it's a bit corny by today's standards, but I guess I'm a big fan of corn. Also enjoyed Edgar Buchanan (Uncle Joe / Petticote Junction) in his role. Perhaps the other reason I'm fond of this film is that I collect 78 rpm records and have several victrolas.

After doowopbob I had to write a review. This is a great story of heartache and love...something we could use a lot more of these days, there are plenty of hardened cynics to go around. If you are up for a tug on your heart strings and a up lifting this movie is for you!!
